“We experienced a huge spike in interest and enrolments in the Certificate III in Carpentry course. This is because students recognise this is a massive growth area and there’s a skills shortage right across NSW."
“Staff at TAFE NSW in Bathurst and across NSW continue to flourish in a busy environment and it was an absolute pleasure to pay tribute to Angela, Jenny and Alison who have all achieved a great deal in 2017."

“It’s been a great experience. When I competed in the WorldSkills regional competition I was pretty chilled out – never did I think I would eventually go on to compete against the world’s best on the other side of the planet.”
